Great Basin National Park Foundation is passionate about ensuring that individuals of all walks of life are able to explore and appreciate Great Basin National Park.
Great Basin Explorers Program
The Great Basin Explorers program brings young people from underserved communities in Salt Lake City and Las Vegas to Great Basin National Park for multi-night camping trips. The Foundation provides funding, materials, and logistical support to the organizations that know these young people best. This collaborative approach combines everyone’s expertise to ensure that underserved young people are able to experience the Park.
Great Basin National Park Foundation works to ensure that members of the tribes located nearest to Great Basin National Park are able to experience this place and share their knowledge about the area. We provide logistical support and funding so that tribes can participate in multi-day camping trips in the Park, including lessons for young people from their own elders about the area. We are also working on a project that will better integrate tribal stories in to the Park’s exhibits and interpretation.
